Hello all!

I have a Dlink di604 from the states that I use only for extra ports. Would something like this work for plugging it in?

Not positive but I think that routers are 12volt?

Thanks!

A quick google suggests that the  di604 is in fact 5V, If this is correct, 12V will likely destroy it. Does the di604 not have the voltage marked on it, may be by the power socket or on a sticker. Failing that check google say download a manual. Do not guess the voltage.
